It did turn out lucky that Ellen had stayed with her, not only could Jo not get up and open the door, she bled out before she blew the bomb. It was possibly a choice of the writers so that Ellen was not resposible for killing her daughter. The writers get squeamish about the strangest things. I thought having Becky not consumate the marriage with Sam might have been squeamish writers too.

Wow. Very sad, but very true. I guess nothing is stronger than a mother's love. Great job!

Yes they are shining bright. Oh how I wish they could have kept them!

Aw, a heartbreaking scene from a heartbreaking episode (why does "temper" trigger such dark images :-) - loved the peace that you created in these last seconds, and Ellens POV that finally allowed her to see Jo as we, perhaps, have seen her all along – as a strong woman, ready to make her own mind and fight for herself. I miss them both! Thanks for bringing them back Amber :-)

Oh my gosh, this was heartbreaking. It made me want to cry. I loved Ellen and Jo. WHY did they have to die?
This whole thing was achingly beautiful, especially this: "Somewhere along the way, Ellen's glass-fragile baby girl had been forged anew. Jo had become tempered steel – resilient, strong; sharp-edged like her mother. Unbreakable." *tear* Such strong images, so wonderfully written.
And then this: "Sometimes, love really does conquer all." Wow. What a fitting end. And I really do believe that is true.
This was such a moving drabble. Bravo! I'm adding it to my favorites.

gah...that scene broke my heart. It was so well done, heartbreaking but understated and elegant. God...get me a tissue.
